SEASON FOURTEEN 10 Plays. Two Cities. One Triad Stage. Fresh off our Lucky 13th Season, Triad Stage is thrilled with the future’s possibilities. We have never been the kind of people to settle for the way things are, so we’re taking bigger chances, making better theater and daring aspirationally to bring together great stories, bold design and world-class acting with TEN PLAYS, TWO CITIES and ONE TRIAD STAGE. The journey from our very first opening night to the beginning of our teenage years today has been an incredible adventure. Triad Stage plays a starring role in revitalizing our historic city centers, creating jobs and bringing artists and audiences to Greensboro and Winston-Salem to witness firsthand the Triad we are proud to call home. Because of you — your continued support and encouragement — Triad Stage is here to stay. Whether you are a donor, a Season Passholder, or a single ticket buyer, we thank you for being a part of our Triad-wide family.

Triad Stage began as a dream... Co-founders Preston Lane and Richard Whittington forged their artistic partnership as graduate students at the Yale School of Drama. After managing a theater in Connecticut for two years, they undertook the three-year task of opening their own theater in the heart of historic Greensboro. In September 1999, Triad Stage purchased the former Montgomery Ward building, which had been built in 1936 and sat vacant for almost 40 years. Renovations transformed the five-story building into a world-class theater center now called The Pyrle Theater, complete with a 300-seat theater and thrust stage, rehearsal hall, offices, two spacious lobbies and other audience amenities.

The Grand Opening took place in January 2002 with Tennessee Williams’ modern classic Suddenly Last Summer.

In 2008, Triad Stage finished a second round of renovations to The Pyrle. A scene shop annex was added in the basement. The top floor underwent major construction to create the 90-seat UpStage Cabaret performance space, the Sloan Rehearsal Hall, and the studio and office facilities of WUNC Public Radio’s new Greensboro Bureau. In 2011, Triad Stage purchased a 30,000 square foot building near the Greensboro Coliseum Complex to serve as the theater’s new production facility, relocating its scene, costume and properties shops as well as its warehouse. In 2013, with significant support from The Arts Council of Winston-Salem and Forsyth County, Triad Stage announced a major expansion of programming to be produced at the Hanesbrands Theatre in downtown Winston-Salem.

Now in its 14th season, Triad Stage has over 3,000 Season Passholders and more than 400 annual donors. The company has received accolades on national, state and local levels, including being named “One of the 10 Most Promising Emerging Theatre Companies” by the American Theatre Wing and “One of the Best Regional Theaters in America” by the Drama League of New York. Triad Stage has been voted the Triad’s “Best Live Theater” by the readers of the News & Record’s GoTriad ten years in a row and named “Professional Theatre of the Year” by the North Carolina Theatre Conference in 2003 and 2011. Its production of Tobacco Road was listed among the “Best of 2007” by The Wall Street Journal, its production of The Glass Menagerie was named “Best North Carolina Production of 2010” by Triangle Arts & Entertainment, and 2012’s production of Reynolds Price’s New Music trilogy was named among the “Best Productions” of the year in Triangle Theatre by Independent Weekly. 6

In non-Theatre of Brent performances, he wrote and played in the 4-part situation comedy for radio called The Patrick and Maureen Maybe Music Experience which ran for four weeks in January of 1999. He played the part of Om in the radio adaptation of Terry Pratchett’s Small Gods (2006), which was adapted by Robin Brooks. Barlow played Bob in Is it Legal?

Patrick Barlow wrote a stage adaptation of Alfred Hitchcock’s The 39 Steps which premiered in June 2005, at the West Yorkshire Playhouse. After revision, the play opened at London’s Tricycle Theatre in August 2006, and after a successful run, transferred to the Criterion Theatre in Piccadilly in September 2006. The play has also been performed on Broadway since early 2008 — in Australia by the Melbourne Theatre Company in April 2008, in Wellington, New Zealand, by Circa Theatre in July/August 2009, and in Bancroft, Ontario, by Blackfly Theatre in July 2011.

Alfred Hitchcock’s film adaptation premiered in 1935 to critical and commercial success. Charles Bennett adapted the script for the 1935 film with Hitchcock. The female characters featured in the movie and play were not included in the original novel. Robert Donat and Madeleine Carroll starred in original 1935 film. Madeleine Carroll was the first in a notorious line of Hitchcock’s “blondes” that later included Grace Kelly and Tippi Hedren. Madel eine Carro ll Robert Donat was known as the “Monte Cristo Man.” Hitchcock referred to Madeleine Carroll as “Scrubby Carroll” as a joke. The 39 Steps was Peggy Ashcroft’s second film. Hitchock was reported to say, “What interests me is the drama of being handcuffed” as one of the major themes of the film. Alfred Hitchcock made cameo appearances in 39 of his films — including The 39 Steps. North by Northwest is widely considered Hitchcock’s “American Thirty-Nine Steps.” In 2004, Total Film magazine named the Hitchcock film the 21st greatest British movies of all time. Screenwriter Robert Towne said, “It’s not much of an exaggeration to say that all contemporary escapist entertainment begins with The 39 Steps.” In 2011, Total Film named the Hitchcock film the second greatest Best Book to Movie Adaptation. Hitchcock’s film was remade three times; all were in the UK. The 1959 film starred Kenneth More as Richard Hannay. The 1978 film version is regarded as the closest adaptation to the original book. Hitchcock once said, “What I liked about The 39 Steps were the sudden switches and the jumping from one situation to another with such rapidity.”

Core Values Triad Stage is guided by core values that inspire all aspects of our operations. These core values are a daily reminder to our entire company of why and how we produce theater for our community.

EXCELLENCE

INCLUSION

We strive for bold, daring excellence in all of our endeavors as we seek to create professional theater with regional and national impact.

Our community’s varied diversity must not only reflect itself in Triad Stage’s casting and staffing, but also in the selection of the stories we choose to tell.

COLLABORATION

ARTISTIC RISK

We celebrate and encourage an artistic process rooted in collaboration. We seek to mirror this process in all aspects of our operations and actively seek partnerships with other organizations to benefit the well-being of our communities.

Striving to constantly challenge ourselves, we reserve the right to take artistic risks and make mistakes.

IMAGINATION

REJUVENATION

Triad Stage delights in the imaginative process. We uphold freedom of expression as indispensable to the power of imagination.

We are committed to revitalizing our historic downtowns by greatly enhancing the cultural life of the Piedmont Triad through entertainment and by providing an economic impact benefiting other area businesses.

COMMUNITY

A SOUTHERN VOICE

As individuals are united in their shared experience of the theatrical event, strangers become friends, common ground is discovered, and dialogue begins. In imagining the lives of others, our capacity for empathy is strengthened.

By placing the best of Southern writing in juxtaposition with classic and contemporary world drama, we foster a unique Southern voice, allowing our audience the pride of saying, “This theater is ours.”

LEARNING

NORTH CAROLINA

Theater is a valuable part of a lifetime of learning. Our work and the dialogue it creates should spark curiosity and inspire creative ways of thinking for our artists, staff and audience.

We seek to play a leading role in the North Carolina arts community. We actively work to create an artistic home for artists with North Carolina connections and to provide a bridge to the profession for emerging artists. 17

Pyrle Gibson (1909-2000) was a woman with a

great sense of humor, who found goodness in all people and beauty in the world around her. Her family always came first in her life and with them she shared her love of theater, music and the thrill of sports. The theater is named for her in loving memory by the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren of the Kaplan family with whom she shared her love, wisdom and joy of life.
